Rumour Mill-Garvan, an Owen for an Owen?
Burnley have had a £1 million bid accepted for Ipswich Town 21 year old midfielder Owen Garvan according to national and local Suffolk media sources today.
Ipswich have had a bad start to their 2009-10 campaign in the Championship and are currently second from bottom with just one point from four games. They were also dumped out of the Carling Cup by local Championship new boys Peterborough in midweek losing 2-1 at Posh in the second round clash.
It is understood Roy Keane wants to boost his war chest and sell those players he does not think have a future at Portman Road.
Keane told Owen Garvan this week he was such a player having been put on the transfer list. The player however is still contracted to Ipswich until June 2011
Garvan born in Dublin is a Republic of Ireland Under 21 international. He spent his youth career with Home Farm in Ireland; the same team that brought on Chris McCann before he signed for the Clarets.
Joining Ipswich in November 2004 he has since made over 140 appearances for the Tractor Boys.
The Summer transfer window closes at 5 pm on Tuesday 1st September next week so one can understand the urgency for managers to seal deals quickly with the shutters about to come down.
